China Glaze 'Tis The Season To Be Naughty And Nice - Part I - Review


Let me start by saying, this is a pic heavy post :)

Yesterday I got a package from China Glaze, who very kindly send their holiday collection 'Tis The Season To Be Naughty And Nice for review! Needless to say I got very excited when I got the box :)
The collection has some traditional Christmas colors like tree green and Santa red, but it has some glittery and shiny polishes as well. After seeing all the polishes together I think that they really managed to bring the holidays in their collection.
So here I am, halfway October, having Christmas songs stuck in my head (my cats look at me like will you shaddap already -.-) and thinking of Christmas candy, lol.

I'm gonna split the collection in 2 posts, else this post will become so insanely big and I think that my head won't appreciate more polish/remover right now :) So today I have the first part for you.
I find that top coat can sometimes alter the color of a polish a bit, so all pictures are without top coat, except the glitters but there I mention it. The description above the pics is from China Glaze.
Enough talking, pic spam inc! :)

Cheers to You: Silver shimmer.

I used 2 coats here. I haven't tried it out but I think this one might be good for stamping.

Mommy Kissing Santa: Deep cherry red shimmer.

Again 2 coats. I'm a sucker for these kinda colors :P

Peace on Earth: Olive green shimmer.

This was also 2 coats. I don't have anything like it in my stash and it's not a typical holiday color, but it actually reminds me of the old xmas stable from my grandma, I think some details in it had this kinda color.
I still didn't get new good lamps for my lightbox, but it usually does show the glow in a polish well anyway like it does here. In some light the polish really looks that kinda color.

Jingle Bells: Champagne shimmer.

Another 2 coater here. This one might be nice for stamping as well, have to try that sometime.

Ruby Deer: Bright red crème.

I used 3 coats for the picture, and still it shows visible nail lines (VNL). But irl 2 coats is enough. I think this color made my boyfriend drool :P (He helped me choose some pics today <3)

Mistletoe Kisses: Green glitter.

I used 2 coats, the VNL that you can see here isn't visible irl. I used top coat on this one, would add a second coat when wearing this as full mani.
Just like Peace on Earth, it's green but it didn't really give me lobster hands!
It removed surprisingly easy for a glitter, I didn't even have to use aluminium foil. I just kept the cotton pad with some remover on it for a little bit and could easy wipe it all off.

Frosty: White frosty shimmer.

I used 4 coats, but it still shows some VNL on the pictures. I'd use some top coat on this when wearing it as full mani. I think it actually has very light red and green sparkles, but they're so light you can barely see it.

Little Drummer Boy: Navy blue shimmer.

Come they told me pa rum pum pum pum... I'm sorry, couldn't resist :P
I used 2 coats, but I could've gotten away with 1 coat if I applied it a bit thicker. So this one should be good to stamp with.

China Glaze polishes can be bought in online stores like Transdesign, and European people can also order them from the Dutch webshop Nailpolish Fashion. I don't know how fast their shipping to the rest of Europe is, but if I order I usually get my package the next day already :)
Transdesign already has the 'Tis The Season To Be Naughty And Nice collection for sale, Nailpolish Fashion should get the polishes tomorrow.

The collection also comes in various giftsets, which have a little something extra like a shot glass, a candle or a plush reindeer. There's a picture of all the sets on my "New Collections" page.

There then, Wall of Pics! Tomorrow I continue with the second part of the collection. Unfortunately the weather sucked for pictures today, very grey and rainy, so hopefully that's better tomorrow. And now I'm hungry :P
Thanks for stopping by! :)
